Cover Talk: The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The cover just recently dropped for Jennifer L. Armentrout's upcoming release. and it is beautiful!

I absolutely adore this cover! In comparison to Jennifer L. Armentrout's other book covers, this is a masterpiece. All of her covers are cheesy and kind of cringe worthy to cart around in public, particularity the Lux series. I didn't have any expectations for this cover but I am astounded at how good this cover turned out. I really love the whole entire water color aspect and typography. The colors make the book really stand out and I can't wait to this on the shelves!

I have read an excerpt of this book, and boy am I excited for it! I don't know too much about this upcoming novel except that it is a young adult contemporary following a girl, Mallory, that is entering public school after being home schooled for quite a while. She is starting her senior year and has major problems with talking and is socially awkward. From the excerpt, I think something life altering happened to our main character that made her the way she is. Mallory likes anonymity and being just another face in the crowd, but her plan doesn't come into fruition because a guy she knows from her past, Rider, is in her class. I have really high expectations for this and I cannot wait! I have only read one other young adult contemporary by Jennifer L. Armentrout, The Dead List, but haven't read her others like Don't Look Back. However, I am familiar with her new adult contemporary, so I already know that I will like this one! Fingers crossed I'll even love it!

Here is the goodreads blurb if you want to know more! It sounds as if the story will be really intense, relationship and plot wise. I could not be more excited! :D

For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.

Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.

It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.

What do you think about the cover? Are you anticipating Jennifer L. Armentrout's newest upcoming release? 

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

  1. I agree with you - this cover is so much better than Jennifer L. Armentrout's other covers! The other ones I ended up getting the kindle version because I didn't like how they looked on my shelves and because it'd be so embarrassing to carry them around. Her other covers don't really say much about the story (although I don't know if this one does either). In any case, I like it so much better! Lovely post!

    1. I'm the same way! I do own two of her books in hard copy, but my other two are in ebook format. That's the one issue I have with the cover. It doesn't say anything about the story really, but I do know that it looks amazing! :D Thanks so much!

  2. I agree with you about having difficulty bringing her other books around in public. This book's cover is much more subdued, and easier to bring around! I haven't read The Dead List or Don't Look Back yet, but I've read her new adult contemporaries, and I'm sure she'll do justice in regards to trauma and raw backstory. I can't wait for this!

    1. Thanks Erika! I have only read Frigid and Scorched for her NA books. What about you? I think so too! She has done really well with trauma in her other books, so I'm excited. Thanks for stopping by. :D
